The Navy Seal's promise was a cute and heartwarming read. It was the first novel I'd read by Soraya Lane. It was quick paced and flowed smoothly. It was a short read and still it left me with a smile on my face.

The story is about Luke Gray, a Navy SEAL who meets United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen on a flight. Saskia is headed home for Christmas on 48 hours leave hoping to see her son. But unfortunately she finds herself stranded on JFK due to a snowstorm. This is when Luke decides to help
Fantastic story. I connected with Saskia and Luke right away. With only two days before she had to return overseas, Saskia is heartbroken when weather cancels her flight home to see her son. Her seatmate on the previous flight, Luke is drawn to the sexy soldier and promises that he will get her home. I could feel Saskia's love for her son and her desperation to make it home to see him. There was also her connection with Luke, something that was totally unexpected for her. She couldn't believe he ...more

This independent release from Harlequin Mills and Boon author Soraya Lane topped the Amazon charts recently. It's a heartwarming love story which tells us that the little things are just as important as the big things - sometimes.

Luke can hardly believe that the beautiful woman who's been sleeping on his shoulder for most of the plane journey is a soldier, US Army Corporal Saskia Cullen. Corporal Cullan is home on 48 hours leave to spend Christmas with her young son. But as the airport is envel

THE NAVY SEAL’S PROMISE is a short story from Soraya Lane’s contemporary romance line of novels. Like many novellas, the storyline is quick paced, to the point and the romance is heartwarming.

The story focuses on two members of the military home for the holidays when they find themselves stranded in a snowstorm at the airport on Christmas Eve. Saskia Cullen is a corporal in the army, on 48 hours leave, hoping to see her young son on Christmas Day before her

"Her saviour. Her knight on a white horse somehow promising to get her where she needed to be."

This book just screams sweetness! I expected a bit more hard ass characters in this since they were in military, but no. Saskia is so feminine and cute, while Luke seems like a man-next-door/knight-in-shining-armor kind of guy. I can easily forget them being in the military and get lost in the story.

A chance meeting that turned into something. I love the fast-paced plot that didn't gave room for dr

Trying to get home to see your son ,getting stranded on the way with a sexy as sin Navy Seal ...sounds very appealing right well of course it does !

Soraya Lane is a new author to me and I have never read her work before so I in all honesty did not know what to expect as I have long been a fan of romance and also of Navy Seal/Military books but I have my selected authors that I know will incorporate enough military tit bits into the book to perfectly mix in with the romance.

I very quickly learned

This was such a fantastic story to read. Not only was it a great story line but the relationship between the two characters had such chemistry that the reader could easily find themselves getting involved with what happens next.
Saskia Cullen has a 48 hour leave from the Army and is looking forward to spending Christmas with her young son. Luke Gray is a Navy SEAL and is also home on a short leave. When a terrible snowstorm shuts down the airport and all connecting flights have been cancelled, S
After reading The Navy Seal's Promise, I read most of the reviews and the negative comments about how 48 hour leaves were not given, not giving leave in the last few months of deployment, etc. This is a story or fantasy and the author has the right to write her fantasy to fit her story line. I personally do not read fiction to see how close it is to reality; I have enough reality everyday.

The two main characters were both strong personalities and I liked how the author used the common strong poi

My review:

The Navy Seal's Promise by Soraya Lane is a sweet and lovable novella with wonderful characters. It is well written and easy to read. The only thing I was sorry about was the length of the novella, it was too short! I would have wanted to read more about the main characters.

US Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is on her way home for Christmas. She has only two days to get home to visit her son an be back again on dutie. During her flight to US she meets Luke who is also on his way back home.

United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen has 48 hours leave, just enough time to spend Christmas with her son. The problem is that she's snowed in and it looks as if she won't make it home on time. Her knight in shining armor is the sexy Luke Gray that she meets on her plane. He knows what her life is like because he's a Navy Seal. He makes her a promise that he'd get her home in time for Christmas dinner, calling in a favor to make it happen.

On the way, they find they have a lot in common and

Soraya Lane is back with a new story for this holiday season. Saskia and Luke are both home on leave, but a snow storm has stranded them in the airport. Saskia is desperate to get home to her son for Christmas. Navy Seal's Promise is a short novella. That was my only complaint. It was too short! I wanted more of Saskia and Luke together. I felt like I had a good sense of their back story, but I wanted to see more of what happened after their deployments and reunion. Right from the start, the att ...more

Disclaimer: Its a really short read!

So two weeks ago, I missed work a little being sick and therefore refused to spend any extra money on my Amazon/Kindle account until I got a better paycheck. Call it being responsible.

In doing so, I got this little freebie, and it was actually pretty good. I mean I'd call it a 3.5 star read, and while I dont really like romances that have the characters "in love" in seconds... okay, days, of meeting, it was a good story.

It must be pretty decent to others too,

Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is on her way home for 48 hours to spend time with her young son for Christmas. She meets Navy SEAL Luke Gray when she wakes up on his shoulder on the plane. Due to blizzard conditions the airport shuts down and she's unable to catch her last flight to make it home in time. But after calling in a favor, Luke finds a way to get her there. And along the way they discover an attraction that could lead to something more.

This was a really cute story that takes place at Chr

Got this from Amazon Prime's lending library. It is a fairly cute, sweet and in one part steamy romance. Sure it came together in a questionably realistic HEA but that is why I read this type of thing- so I know everything will end super happy regardless of the likelihood (hey- it could happen- don't judge me!). Don't think to much on the details on this one and just enjoy the story for what it is.

This was a short, sweet, endearing story. Two military people meet on a flight. Connecting flight gets canceled due to weather. Woman needs to get home to see her son on her 2 days leave. Man promises to get her there. There's some sexy moments, some sweet moments, and ones to make you smile. This is worth taking time to curl up with a blanket on a Sunday afternoon and read. There's nothing overtly deep to it, nothing to make you go, WOW, it's just short and simple.

I got this for free on amazon. I havent read anything by this author before and it was a nice surprise . I enjoyed the story, a mom trying to get home to her son and a navy seal helps her get there, a snow storm and some chemistry between them and you have a nice quick read. It was worth the time to read.
Nov 23, 2016 Melissa rated it really liked it
"The Navy Seal's Promise" is a sweet story of finding love in the most unexpected circumstances. Saskia and Luke have many broken pieces from prior relationships and hardships. I enjoyed their story. No kindle gripping moments. No over thinking. Just an easy light story that was perfect heading into the holidays.
Feb 01, 2013 Gina rated it really liked it
This book was good, for what it was. Short, sweet and to the point can never be bad, right? My only disappointment was the "sizzle". They kept talking about their attraction, but when it came time, there wasn't any real spark. The stuff with her son was touching, it even had me choked up! A good, quick read!
When I cracked open this book last night at 9 I didn't anticipate finishing it by 10:30. It's very short, easy to read and has a happy ending. Not much else to say. I did like that the military was portrayed in a positive light and to have 2 branches get together was unique. If you're looking for a really quick read, borrow it from my library and enjoy.

A sweet and sexy novella, featuring an Army heroine and a SEAL hero.

Plenty of emotion packed into a short read.
And the sparks created between Luke and Saskia are great!

A wonderfully satisfying read.

This was a good story about two military people on leave during a snow storm. It was told without a lot of unnecessary beating around the bush and repetition in the story. It is told forthright and is interesting. I will be reading this author again.

This story was a perfect example of an extremely well written short story. The length had no impact on the terrific character development and perfect plot. It was about choosing the moments to be showcased and glossing over unnecessary details.

3.5 stars!

A sweet seal that keeps his promise.

I was hoping for more length. Otherwise I really enjoyed this story about two strangers fighting an undeniable attraction.
The ending definitely made me want more.

This was a great, easy read. I caught myself tearing up at parts as I got excited and sad along with the characters in the boom. The sex scene was a bit much, but everything else was wonderful.

Really enjoyable characters. I loved their interaction over trivial things and the one big thing, getting her home to her son on such a short leave. The hero comes through with flying colors and then some. The ending is sublime.
